If I had to describe Queen in the 80's, I would just say that the band has made lots of hits or misses.

The band decided to begin the decade by experimenting and leaving their comfort zone.
Introducing synthesizers and more pop sounds is maybe a risky move when your fanbase is constructed with progressive/hard rock fans. The change of style can be very difficult and not being appreciated as much as songs like "Bohemian Rhapsody" or "Don't Stop Me Now". Still, the move was ... read more

Melting many genres with a nu-metal base, Japanese band Maximum The Hormone succeeds at proposing an entertaining and energetic trip through this album.

"Death Note's" fans in particular won't be indifferent with "Bu-ikikaesu" as it features both the anime's second opening and ending -"Zetsubou Billy" & "What's up, people?!", both great songs-. The rest of the track list has bonkers tracks as well -the title track & "Louisiana Bob" are ... read more

Good lyrics here and there but the music is forgettable in terms of both composition and production.

I might have misjudged this album.

Listening to it again after a few months, I find more positive things to say about it.
My original rating was 6.5/10 and my opinion about "Future Nostalgia" was that it was redundant as hell. While I still think the album doesn't have that much variety in terms of moods or tone, it's definitely a feel-good album that lift the mood a lot when you feel down.

It's also seeing the growth of Dua Lipa since her debut album that made me change my ... read more

Pretty boring.

It sounds more like a Gorillaz album than a Blur one.
It doesn't help that Graham Coxon is absent from "Think Tank" because even with its ideas, the album lacks Coxon's artistic paw that made "13" the amazing album it is. It's not to say that the album is bad without it but after listening to "Blur" & "13", I can't help but feel a little bit disappointed.

I liked the first songs such as "Out of Time" or "Crazy ... read more

I was fearing that "30" would have the same musical personality as "25", an album that already felt like a pretty superficial and watered down version of the great "21" to me. The first single "Easy on Me" was the root of that fear as I felt that everything from its lyrics to its videoclip was trying to mimic "25's" vibe.
Surprisingly, I was wrong.

"30" is a real progression for Adele.
It features both typical Adele songs -"Easy ... read more

Hey there! I’m making a community list for the end of the world, and I would love for you to contribute.

Prompt:

“The surrounding buildings, in ruins. The remaining survivors, scrambling to find anything that remains. Fire flickers in the pitch-black, creating just a sliver of radiance. Miraculously, you find an old device that can play music. You can only play one album as the battery is nearly dead. Knowing that you have little time left, what is the one album that you choose to listen to as you watch the world crumble before your eyes?”

The album topic could discuss a disastrous time, its sound could fit the vibe of a post apocalyptic setting, or it could be one of your favorite albums that you would want to experience for the last time.

Please provide the artist, album, and an explanation as to why you chose that specific album.

Thank you for reading <3

Here’s the list:

Blur is one of my favourite band. Here is my ranking from best to least favourite studio album from them.

Silly list. These are just albums with black & white covers.

Those albums might not be the greatest of all times but for some reason, I can recall something special about them and would call some of them my favourite.
